A new story mode called Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna ~ The Golden Country is coming to the Switch. If you have the Expansion Pass ($29.99) this DLC will be included and release on September 14, 2018. If, for some reason, you’d rather have this prequel on a cartridge, Nintendo will sell it on September 21 for $39.99. This version does NOT come with the base Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game. It just has the prequel and the Expansion Pass just incase you decide to get the full Xenoblade 2 in the future. Phew, that’s confusing.
This new prequel will allow you to explore a new Titan: Kingdom of Torna. It takes place 500 years before the events in Xenbolade 2. Check out the trailer and screens:
